Sister School Exchange
is an Alaskan cross-cultural immersion
program. Teams made up of five students (middle or high school) and
one teacher from an urban area of Alaska are paired with another team
from rural Alaska.
After sharing a little about themselves and their community, and
learning a little about where they are going, each team travels to
their Sister School community to live there for one week. Each student
and the teacher are hosted by a different host family.
During the one-week stay, educational projects and field trips are
organized to broaden student knowledge of other parts of Alaska. The
students spend the first part of each weekday attending classes at
their Sister School, and then spend the remainder of the day
participating in experiences to help them learn more about the culture
of the community.
